In the photos above the Leupold scope sits inside Burris Deluxe Ring, .22 Caliber, 1", Medium, Steel, Gloss Finish 420072 and the Burris scope on the right is in Leupold 54289 rings, (I think)

Thanks, and once again I am sorry for hijacking.

I'm 73, my eyes have been through some things too. I've found that some cheap low power reading glasses can help me see iron sights pretty well. I get glasses that still allow me to see distance fairly clear yet help enough to bring the rifle and handgun sights into useable focus. It's a compromise, but at our age there is a lot of compromise in our lives.

I found this about the Weaver B4 and B6 scopes, thought some might be interested.

While I was reading that link I remembered I had gotten a couple of 3/4" scopes when I bought my cousins Winchester 61. I dug them out and one is a Springfield 3-7x and the other a Weaver v22 3-6x. The Weaver is in pretty nice shape. Perhaps I need to buy a decent set of 3/4" rings and see how it works on one of the 9422's or maybe put it back on the 61 like I remember the first time he let me shoot it.

I like the look of the little Leupold rimfire scopes much more than the long skinny Weaver V22. And the glass and field of view is much better.

The V22 Weaver is not a bad choice. Nice for a cheepo. Weaver made good, cheap scopes. I still put my $$$ on a Baby Redfield. High quality and small compact size. Only a 4X, but you are not putting this scope on a M52. Big Larry

I agree the V22 is a good scope. I had one on my first .22LR from when I was about 14 and shot it many thousands of rounds over 35 years. Rifle now has a 2-7 Leupold though.

I had a couple years ago. I put them on a pair of M61 22 Mags. that I had. Pretty much worthless. Should have gotten better scopes. Got rid of the two M61's. Sorry for that now. A good choice now, to keep it in the same time frame, would be a Weaver J4. These are good scopes. Big Larry

I found a Baby Redfield on a cheap and somewhat mangled Savage .22 Magnum a year or so ago. I think the rifle cost me about $150, I kept the scope and sold the rifle for about $100. The scope now sits on a Savage Anschutz Model 141 dating to 1968. The S/A came with a Redfield 4X Wide-angle scope, another nice scope but which unfortunately has a broken horizontal crosshair. I'd like to get it repaired but the costs are more than the replacement price of the scope.

But, back to the Baby Redfield, a lovely little thing, I wish I could find more.

Being somewhat of a hard core collector, the Baby Redfields are a little to late for my pre 64 Winchester 22's and I have no post 64's to put one on. I just happen to have a nice one, but do not have the heart to get rid of it. Looks good on my late M69-A's or any other of my late rifles with a grooved receiver, but just not technically correct. I guess I am too much of a purist and that's why all my scopes are vintage. Big Larry
